On the Mend.

Today is the end of week 3, and my foot is getting better.   I can finally put weight on it without feeling pain, but still have discomfort with some tendons on the top left of foot.  I finally gave in and listened to my podiatrist and put my foot in a boot for 3 days, which did help.   I attempted to run twice in the 3 weeks which was a foolish idea.  I usually run through injuries, but having a foot injury is a different story.    Basically i strained the tendons in my foot and around my ankle,  my foot really started to hurt during my NYC Barefoot run.

I can’t really pin point when this injury happened, strains are a gradual injury and they are tough to determine when it exactly happened, but I think I have good idea when I did it.  I am sure it happened when I was messing around with my older son in the back yard jumping over lawn furniture, and off the picnic table.  I think it’s time to give up lawn furniture jumping,  I’m 40 not 20.

Anyways being out of commission for this long is new territory for me.  I was cranky, angry, and depressed at times.  I think the psychological aspects is more difficult to handle than the actually injury.  I learned allot from this injury, mainly just to appreciate running in its simplistic form.   It’s a beautiful fall morning right now, and a perfect day for a run,  I might test out the foot and see what happens, if it’s a no go I will not push it.

Ran the Fairfield CT half marathon this morning. Came in with a time off 1:50:12.  This  was my 8th consecutive year running this race, and barefoot. My training was super light. Maybe 12-15 miles per week with no speed training, or fancy workouts, all runs were slow. I started lifting weights again, and noticed a big difference with running. The weight training is what pulled me through. The best snack/protein bar out there. Definitely no BS.

Street Art. Friday evening at the beach. My little sweetie is growing up.  We were stuck in traffic and I snapped a quick picture of her and it's crazy to notice the changes of your children at certain points.
